Below are the list of foods that will fasten your weight loss process.
Many of you that are obese and overweight must have sorted out various diets plans in order to lose weight. The truth remains; to achieve weight loss, you have to engage in a healthy lifestyle. Eating low-calorie foods alongside exercising.
However, to fasten the process of weight loss, you have to incorporate the foods that I will list below into your daily feeding. These foods not only relieve water weight of your body, they also help you crave less of foods. Increase your metabolism and make you feel fuller throughout the day.
It doesn’t mean you just relax at a place and keep eating them and expect weight loss. No! You just have to incorporate them into whatever you eat. Better still, use them to replace those unhealthy foods which had always deprived you of losing weight faster.
Green Bananas or Plantains
Bananas or Plantains are high in Resistant starch. And Resistant starch helps you store less fat and burn 30% more fat after you eat a meal.
Resistant Starch improves insulin sensitivity which basically means there is less insulin floating around in your body which allows more fat burning (not fat storing) to occur.
Resistant starch helps you feel full and eat much less over long periods of time for faster weight loss. Resistant starch (or bananas) is used in the highly successful green plantain diet. More foods loaded with resistant starch include navy beans, high amylase cornstarch, potatoes, lentils, oatmeal, parboiled rice, green peas & cashews.
Oatmeal is high in resistant starch. It keeps you full or satisfied longer than any other breakfast cereal. High in fiber that research has shown to reduce belly fat. Oatmeal also keeps your blood sugar in check and less blood sugar means less insulin, less fat storing and more fat burning.
Guavas have high vitamin C content. And it’s been proven that enough vitamin C in your diet burns 30% more fat when exercising. And without enough vitamin C in your body, it makes it harder for your body to burn fat.
Vitamin C helps to keep cortisol in check which prevents you from gaining too much belly fat. Other foods high in vitamin C are Kiwi, Broccoli, Strawberries and Papaya.
Cinnamon makes weight loss easier by lowering your blood sugar levels. Consequently, it gets rid of your sugar cravings. So sprinkle some on your favorite foods but just don’t do any cinnamon challenges.
Boiled potatoes have the highest satiety rating among all foods. And satiety is basically a measure of how long you stay full or satisfied after eating something.
You are going to tend to eat a lot less after having a boiled potato. However, eating less or eating the right amount of calories is key for you losing weight.
- Skimmed milk & yogurt smoothies
- Vegetable juice
Avocados can kill hunger for up to 5 hours or decrease your desire to eat by 40% according to this report here and when you are not hungry… You don’t eat as much (calories) meaning you will lose weight that much faster.
Pork Chops are high in protein and whenever your diet is high in protein you are always going to lose weight faster. So, it’s not about eating more pork chops – It’s about getting more protein in your diet with pork chops and/or any other high-protein foods.
Pork chops are also high in selenium (which helps your body produce more thyroid hormones that give you more energy and keep your fat burning metabolism high).
Grass Fed Beef
Grass Fed Beef contains lots of CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) which is basically a healthy fat that burns fat. CLA helped people in this study lose 9% of their body fat without making any changes to their diet or exercise program, also CLA like fish also regulates leptin which is crucial for maintaining or losing weight.
Other foods high in CLA include other grass fed ruminants like goats, sheep & deer along with other dairy products like milk and cheese.
All fish like Cod, Salmon, Tuna & Sardines help you lose weight by regulating the amount of a fat-burning hormone called Leptin that suppresses your appetite.
Foods high in calcium like fat-free yogurt, cheese, & skimmed milk can boost your weight loss by 70% and also verified in this study.
People who got more calcium in their weight loss diet Lost 5 times more belly fat and twice as much weight overall than those who didn’t get enough calcium in their weight loss diet.
The reason why calcium is magical for weight loss is that it suppresses calcitriol which is a hormone responsible for making you fatter, so less calcitriol = more weight loss.
Calcium also reduces your appetite so you will eat less & lose more weight faster.
Apples contain a very special fiber called Pectin and it’s a strong appetite suppressant that keeps you satisfied for long periods of time (about 1-to-2 hours longer than regular fiber) without using any expensive appetite suppressant drugs.
Pectin regulates your blood sugar which also prevents you from overeating and gives you better blood-sugar control; which means less fat is being stored and lower insulin leading to more fat burning.
Pectin is also found in apricots, bananas, cabbage, carrots, legumes, onions, peaches, oranges and grapefruit
The magic weight loss ingredient in Chili Peppers is capsaicin. Capsaicin causes you to release a hormone that kills your hunger called serotonin and adding Capsaicin to your daily meals can increase your metabolism by 50-100 calories which adds up to you losing an extra 5-10 pounds of fat each year.
